It seems, that the site had some trouble to stay online and especially 
to provide the ranking today.

I am a bit dissapointed, that my idea of not duplicating, but utilizing 
the efforts others put into solving the job (titled by the submitter ID 
'TheParasite') which resulted in a submission of a 15 Bytes large full 
functional module was evaluated as having a 'syntax error' problem and 
was placed in the ranking at the position according to the size of the 
331 byte large .zip archive it was put into along with some necessary 
installation instructions.

By the way: trying to submit along with the module complete installation 
instructions and comments failed because there is a 345 bytes limit for 
size of allowed uploads.
